'Hugo' Trailer Is A Dickensian 'Home Alone'

Hugo's dad gives awesome gifts, from the look of this trailer. Martin Scorsese is taking break from his Leo DiCaprio-laden works to venture off into the realm of family fare with Hugo, the story of an orphaned boy who teams up with a girl to unlock the secrets of his father's last gift to him. It's got some very Victorian sensibilities, going for the look that those Zemeckis mo-cap films went for but never got. It also boasts Sacha Baron Cohen playing it fairly straight as a train worker who is constantly on the heels of the duo. Also, he falls into a cake. On first glance, it would appear that the stars have aligned to bring us the funny, touching, 3D family film that so many studios have tried to wheel out and failed. High hopes for this one.

‘Arthur’ Trailer Boasts More Of Brand’s Cheekiness

Hide your tea, hide your crumpets, because Russell Brand is getting DOWNRIGHT CHEEKY all over errybody in this first trailer for the upcoming remake of 'Arthur'. That's right, Russell Brand is downright cheeky in this first trailer for the upcoming remake of Dudley Moore's Arthur. I know, I was as surprised as you are, but there it is: cheekiness on display. Brand in a bathtub: cheeky. Brand on a horse: cheeky. Brand in a Batman costume: cheeky overload. It's unsure how actually funny the film (or Brand) will be, but one thing is for sure: when you mix the guy who has sex with Katy Perry with Helen Mirren, Luis Guzman, Greta Gerwig, and source material from the legendary Dudley Moore, things are going to get... cheeky. Arthur is in (cheeky) theaters everywhere April 8th.


'Turbo Kid' Gives Us An 80s-Style Family Adventure Set In 1997

But how will he text people without a cell phone? Amid the much-hyped summer movie deluge, we've got a fun, modest family movie that's introducing itself to the world. Turbo Kid is the story of a boy (orphaned, natch) who goes on a quest to save his female robot friend from a power-hungry warlord. Sounds pretty weird, right? It's the work of three (!) directors, François Simard, Annouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell, who are hoping to take audiences back to the types of family adventure films we saw in the 80s like Goonies, The Last Starfighter, and Time Bandits. Check out the trailer and see if they hit their mark.

New 'Tintin' Trailer Proves Mo-Cap Doesn't Have To Suck

Zemeckis, take notes. [post-video postid="212419"] A bloody good new full-length U.K. trailer for Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever has dropped on the Internets. It's refreshing to see a movie done entirely in mo-cap that doesn't send chills down my spine. Spielberg and Peter Jackson may have solved the "dead-eyes" problem that has plagued so many previous mo-cap films **touches nose with one finger, points as Robert Zemeckis with the other** I'm now officially excited to see what looks like an exciting adventure story. If nothing else, that dog, Snowy, is damn adorable. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever opens in the U.K on October 26, and in the U.S. on December 23. Hey Brits, don't yell spoilers across the pond to us Yanks.
